Code Orange have had a huge last year or two, signing to Roadrunner and releasing their third killer album Forever, before jumping on all sorts of tours with the likes of Deftones, System Of A Down, Meshuggah, Gojira and Hatebreed to name a few. The title track was even nominated for a Grammy award in 2018 for Best Metal Performance.
With the band now having confirmed that their fourth record is coming together, they've put out a new documentary called my world which is a really stylistic look into a whole bunch of behind-the-scenes footage from recording sessions, shows and general happenings in their world. Check it out below:
my world premiered on Revolver, where vocalist Jami Morgan told them about the inspiration behind the whole thing:
“We just wanted to make something that kind of showed a little bit of a different side to us, but in our mind still rolled with the vision that we’re trying to create through our records. There’s a lot of loose band documentaries with a lot of footage that we all really liked watching, like Type O‘s After Dark or I have Nine Inch Nails‘ Closure, there’s a Pantera one, a great Manson one, a great KMFDM one … there’s just been a lot of cool ones over the years.
So we thought, actually about two years ago at this point, “Let’s just start shooting and see what we can do.” Shade is the one who kind of put the whole thing together and added all the visual elements to it, which I think make it really interesting.
So we just wanted to do something to shine light on a different side of what we do, because we haven’t really done anything that was, quote-unquote, “behind the scenes” with recording or us talking — we’re never done anything like that. It’s a little taste of what we thought would be cool for people who like us, or people who don’t!”
Code Orange will be hitting up Download Festival in Sydney and Melbourne in March 9 and 11 respectively, with an additional sideshow at The Zoo in Brisbane on March 10.
